Winter is a Great Time to lose weight
Diva - 02 Jun 22
We all have believed that summer is the best time to lose weight as it helps in burning more calories but a new study states otherwise. Working out in a cold environment can increase the body's ability to adapt to different temperatures and boost the fat-burning capacity of the body. While this may sound interesting, please remember that when it comes to losing weight, your diet, workout schedule, lifestyle choices - everything makes a difference.
Try new indoor activities
Cold weather can be an opportunity to try new indoor physical activities. You can climb stairs for a high-intensity cardio and leg workout. Dancing, yoga and martial arts are some other indoor activities that will make you burn calories without having to step out of the house.
Focus on quality sleep
Studies have found that not getting enough sleep can lead to weight gain. But winters can help you get more sleep, which can promote weight loss.
Drink lukewarm water
A lot of people drink less water during the winter season, which can lead to dehydration, increased hunger pangs and decreased fat burning capacity of the body. Switching to lukewarm water can stimulate blood circulation, break down fat deposits and help maintain body temperature.
You see, the body burns more calories in the cold weather because of which a calorie deficit is automatically created. As a result, you end up losing more weight in the winter than summer if you ate the same diet.
The best way to stay fit and find motivation in the cold season is to remember that when summer approaches, you can look forward to coming out of those heavy clothes to a super fit body that was kept under wraps for the time being.
Exercise keeps your body warm and nourished, so you should step out and go for a run or cycle—both of which will help you shed calories too!
To avoid eating sweets it’s best to be well hydrated and be ready with protein-rich snacks like nuts which you should keep handy. Dehydration is quite common in winter due to use of heating devices at home, so remember that a thirsty body will crave unnecessary foods at odd times.
Always drink a glass of water before you give into any temptation of hunger outside of meal time. In fact, warm water is a great option to sip throughout the day.
